Bara Vaida is a RYT-500 certified yoga teacher, who focuses on functional movement, strength and the healing aspects of yoga. She found yoga 25 years ago as part of a fitness routine and fell in love the way the practice heals the mind and body. Her mission is to empower students to find their own path to health and well-being. Outside of yoga, she is a DC resident and freelance journalist, focusing on health care policy and enjoys spending time with her family and dogs.

Once you have registered for one class, you will be enrolled in that class each week. You do need to register for other classes other days.

Participate in the exercise programs  at your own risk and remember to consult with your doctor before starting a new fitness program.

Masks must be worn in the building at all times!

Since these are indoor spaces, masks will be mandatory and the capacities are lower. Please try to attend classes if you sign up for them. If more folks sign up than space will allow, we will start issuing “tickets” to participants on a first-come first-serve basis to those who have registered through our system.


Our funders, the DC Department of Aging and Community Living, and the District of Columbia, are not requiring participants to be vaccinated to join our programs. Please be aware of proximity to others and do not join our in-person events if you are ill.

This release shall include any claims, demands, injuries, damages, or actions arising out of or connected with my use of Iona’s services and facilities, both on and off Iona’s premises, and from all acts of ordinary negligence on the part of Iona.
